• “My C1 apparently isn’t healing optimally” – Big E
2022 has been rough for Big E.
He lost the WWE Championship on the first day of the year. He then suffered a broken neck on an episode of SmackDown, which resulted in him missing WrestleMania 38.
This morning, Big E gave the following update on his neck injury on Twitter:
“For those desirous of an update, my C1 apparently isn’t healing optimally.
I’ll spend another 4-6 weeks in a brace in hopes that I can avoid a fusion.
But don’t you fret! I’ve got a tremendous support system & what shall be shall be.”
